FLOOR PLAN: SMALL HOME IS RIGHT SIZE FOR COUPLES

SHARE FLOOR PLAN: SMALL HOME IS RIGHT SIZE FOR COUPLES

For a recently retired couple seeking to downsize to a home that requires less maintenance or empty nesters who have children and friends for overnight visits, the 1,503-square-foot Suzanne is a home that will definitely fit your needs.

Enter this impressive home, where vaulted ceilings enhance almost the entire front section. To the left of the entry, the living room has been designed as a spot to relax with family and friends for conversation or perhaps a game of Scrabble. Maybe you would rather sit with a good book in front of the fireplace, angled windows on either side providing available sunlight. There is access to a good-size deck along the side of the house. Here sunny days merit a nice barbecue or a lazy nap in the lounge chair, cares floating away with the clouds.The bountiful master suite is sure to please. Features in this unique room include a huge walk-in closet, shower, separate vanity, door to the deck and private spa, where aching muscles can be restored. Extra closets are conveniently located in the hallway.

The second bedroom, with generous closet space, is separated from the master suite by a full, skylighted bathroom and a handy utility room with door to the back yard.

A spacious kitchen, with a large garden window, central work station and built-in appliances, is sure to gratify the cook in the house. Meals are easily served in the adjoining dining room. Two large front windows provide a pleasing view, while permitting sunlight to grace the table.

A door from the kitchen to the garage lets you carry in groceries without concern for the weather. At the rear of the garage is a separate workshop that grants the do-it-yourself enthusiast in the family plenty of room for working on any number of projects.
